Welcome to the Steve Parish Amazing Facts range. The series presents informative facts, charts and extraordinary photographs to help you learn about this remarkable continent. This book is packed full of information and you'll be amazed at how much you learn about Australia's insects and spiders by scuttling through the remarkable facts presented. This book aims to inspire in our readers a curiosity and thirst to know more about the unique animals that live so closely alongside us in our different environments. Most of the extraordinary creatures in this book will amaze you with the artistry of their tiny bodies and the complexity of their senses, behaviours and rich social lives. Many people have an immediate reaction of fear and disgust towards insects and spiders, but closer investigation reveals how beautiful and truly amazing these small animals are.Within these pages you will hear of tiny blind construction workers who cooperate to build huge, high-rise, air-conditioned homes with farms inside them; you'll read about spider's silk -- one of the world's strongest fibres, which is five times stronger than steel for its size; and you'll re-discover the incredible reorganisation of a caterpillar into a butterfly. Perhaps what you learn from this book will delight you so much that you'll want to delve deeper into the amazing lives of Australia's creatures.
